Role

Age Scotland is the national charity for older people. We work to improve the lives of everyone over the age of 50 so that they can love later life.

We support and enable hundreds of communities and older people’s groups across Scotland. We provide information, friendship and advice through our free helpline, publications, and workshops. We tackle loneliness and isolation with our Community Connecting Service and much more.

We work in Scotland with older people’s groups who provide vital activities and services for older people in their local community. We campaign on the issues that older people tell us are important to them.

Our Fundraising & Marketing Team are looking for a Community Fundraiser to take a lead role in generating and maximising income from community fundraising activities with a focus on challenge/sponsored events, bespoke Age Scotland events, private and street collections, static collection boxes, fundraising volunteers, and local businesses.

The post will be a blend of office based (in Edinburgh) and home-based work.

Due to the Covid outbreak in the UK, we have adapted our way of working to ensure the ongoing delivery of services, while minimising risk to our employees. Depending on guidance from the Scottish Government regarding the lifting of lockdown restrictions, this role may initially be completely home based, incorporating office work and face to face contact when it is safe to do so.

In return for your expertise and commitment to our values you’ll receive a generous holiday allowance, a range of learning and development opportunities, optional healthcare benefits and a contributory pension scheme with employer contributions of up to 9%.

If you have the skills, experience and ambition required to fulfil this role, then please apply now.
